Suppose then a machine has a velocity ratio of 4:1,   and  an
efficiency of 30 %r its real mechanical advantage would be

4x30        ____

I X IOO

Referring to example 42, p. 484, let us assume an efficiency of
60%.    Then

W         1120

rr = -—

So, in actual practice, the pitch line diameters may he 3" and 31*2"
for pinion and wheel respectively.

Example 43 needs no  correction, because this is a question of
positive speed merely.

In example 44 let us again assume an efficiency of 6o°/0.    Now
TMA=i6:i=:VR

. *.   P M A = i6x-6 = 9-6: i

and Wx = 9*6 x 120 = 1 150 Ibs.

if the Weston block has an efficiency of 35 % (see P- 577) we nave

P M A = 20 x 35 = 7 : i
. • . Wj « 7 x 50 = 350 Ibs.

In like manner the real pull on the handle in the screw jack, p.
520, with an efficiency of 60° J0 for the worm and 35 °/0 for the screw,
or a total of '6 x '35 == -21 would be

P! = 20 -=- '21 = 95 Ibs.
which means that 10 tons could not be raised conveniently.
